Getac rugged devices put the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship in pole position for the 2019 season and beyond

Faster trackside task completion

Improved data sharing

Better TV coverage


The Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) is one of the most famous motor racing series in the world. Each season sees 30 championship races take place across the UK at iconic circuits including Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Donington Park.



Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship race weekends are extremely physical environments for IT equipment.

Not only must devices survive the hustle and bustle of race control, they are also used extensively throughout the pits and at trackside, where accidental bumps, spillages and drops are all regular occurrences.


Getac’s S410 semi rugged notebook PCs and A140 fully rugged tablet PCs provide the perfect combination of powerful performance and rugged reliability.

Not only can the devices withstand all the punishment of a race weekend, their extensive functionality means they can be used for everything from set up and testing, to race day operations.



Race officials now have complete confidence in both the durability and capability of their Getac devices, wherever they go.

As a result, key tasks such as vehicle inspections and engine data collection can be completed much faster than previously possible, making race operations smoother and more efficient throughout the whole weekend. The new solution has also enabled the BTCC to further improve its race day coverage with ITV, offering viewers even better in-vehicle footage, as well as providing race partners with deeper insights into key areas such as on-track engine performance and split timings.

Getac’s rugged notebooks and tablets provide a new level of freedom that we simply didn’t have before. Racing weekends are hard on equipment and we used to spend a lot of time trying to make sure our devices weren’t getting broken or damaged, meaning tasks often took longer than they needed to. Now we don’t need to worry about that kind of thing, even when down at trackside. No matter what we throw at them, our Getac devices just work.
